Sprays of tiny lilac-purple spring flowers suspended on delicate, wiry stems above bronze-flushed, light-green leaves. This elegant, deciduous foliage plant is perfect for a lightly shaded site, and its handsome leaves, which resemble lopsided hearts, look lovely at the front of a shady border - or growing next to woodland plants.
- Garden care: In early spring remove dead and damaged leaves before the flowers appear and apply a thick mulch of compost or well rotted manure around the crown of the plant. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
